Happenings in the Art Room

Week of April 20th-24th

Our new Artist Spotlight is M.C. Escher. I'm super excited about this upcoming study of his work. I know our students will be fascinated by his drawings. We will begin with a short introductory video found by clicking on this link:

Week of April 13th-17th

Given the tornado damage and extensive power outages this week, I have not posted any Art assignments for the week of the 13th-17th.

Week of March 30th - April 3rd

You still have another week to finish your Earth Day recycled art pieces. (Please see last week's information). I've enjoyed seeing some of the photos that have been submitted. As always, our students have been super creative. I'm so excited to see more photos come in this week. Your assignment for this week is to take a virtual tour of the Boston Children's Museum. Here is the link:

Keep checking back for new assignments. Next week we'll be studying a new "Artist of the Month" for April. Stay tuned!

Week of March 23-27th

Hey students! While we are all still at home, we're going to move our Earth Day projects up a bit. For Earth Day we are going to be working on creating unique pieces from recycled materials that you have at home. The only requirement is that you use a minimum of five pieces of recyclable materials. Your finished piece doesn't have to be painted. You can save your art supplies for future projects or other classes. I'm just looking for creativity and originality using every day items you have at home. You will have until April 3rd to take photos or videos of your finished creation and have your parents submit them via email to [email protected] I look forward to seeing your work and I will be awarding prizes for different age groups based on originality and creativity. Next week we'll be taking some virtual museum tours so please stay tuned. I miss you all like crazy! I love you to the moon and back and can't wait to have you back in class. - Mrs. Nichols
